In a joint statement from the WTA Tour and ATP Tour, and in conjunction with the International Tennis Federation, the professional tennis season has been suspended through June 7, 2020.
In response to the current suspension of the season, the WTA Rankings have been frozen until play resumes.
What does a “Frozen Ranking” mean?
A Frozen Ranking means a player’s ranking as of March 9, 2020 will remain in place until play resumes. Points earned during the 2019 Indian Wells tournament will remain on a player’s ranking, as well as the points earned across all levels in the weeks that followed through March 9, 2020.
In short, a player's Frozen Ranking includes all points earned from 2019 Indian Wells through March 9, 2020.
The WTA Player and Tournament Councils, WTA leadership team, along with the ATP and ITF, continue to work on the process moving forward.
This announcement extended the previous suspension of play through the Spring clay court season, which will not be held as scheduled. In addition to the previously suspended events in Indian Wells, Miami, Charleston, Bogota, Stuttgart, Prague, and Istanbul, this now includes the combined ATP/WTA tournaments in Madrid and Rome, along with the WTA events in Strasbourg and Rabat and ATP events in Munich, Estoril, Geneva and Lyon.
At this time, tournaments taking place from June 8, 2020 onwards are still planning to go ahead as per the published schedule. This includes the International events in s'Hertogenbosch and Nottingham, which are currently scheduled to begin on June 8th.
